Frasier and Juan were cousins.

For the above relationships to exist, How many were there, grandparents, parents, children, cousins and siblings in all?
16 people: Named are John, Diane, Jon, Lorraine, Ricardo, Juan, Suzi, Lorna-Jane, Frazier. Unnamed are Lorna-Jane and Juans 4 kids, Frazier and Suzi's 3 kids. Ricardo has no children.
4 grandparents: John, Diane, Jon, and Lorraine. Their grandkids are Lorna-Jane and Juans 4 and Frazier and Suzi's 3.
8 Parents: John, Diane, Jon, Lorraine, Juan, Suzi, Lorna-Jane, Frazier. Ricardo had no children.
12 Children: Ricardo, Juan, Suzi, Lorna-Jane, Frazier, the twins (2) of Lorna-Jane and Juan, their two other children, and Suzi and Fraziers 3 kids.
12 Cousins: The same as the children since they're all related. Ricardo, Juan, and Suzi are cousins to Lorna-Jane and Frazier, Juan and Lorna-Jane's 4 kids are cousins to Frazier and Suzi's 3. I'm confused a little because I'm not sure if we're counting cousin pairs (i.e. Ricardo & Lorna-Jane, Ricardo & Frazier, etc) or just individuals who are considered cousins.
16 Siblings: Same number of people, everyone in the puzzle has a sibling. Once again, I'm not sure if we're talking about individual siblings or paired off siblings, so I'll go with the more logical of the two.
